The Gears of War 3 voicecast sees a bit of shake up as hip-hop artist Drake is replaced by actor Michael B Jordan (no relation to the legendary basketball player).
The news was confirmed via Cliff Bleszinski’s Twitter account. Jordan currently can be seen in the TV Shows Friday Night Lights and Parenthood but has been in everything from The Sopranos to All My Children to Burn Notice.
This is Jace’s first appearance in Gears of War 3 but he has made appearances in Gears of War novels and comic books.
No reason was revealed for the change in the voice-acting class other than to say the role had been recast.
Other notable new voice actors in Gears of War 3 include Ice-T as Griffin and Claudia Black as Sam. They join the returning voice cast that includes John Di Maggio as Marcus Fenix, Lester Speight as Cole, Carlos Ferro as Dom and Nan McNamara as Anya.
